Community Update - July 13, 2020

Dear Paramus Community,

I am excited to announce the launch of a new site, Paramus Community Connections. In addition to providing accurate and timely information that is relevant and specific to us all, the site is also designed to celebrate the amazing students and adults who make our schools the pride of our community. All pertinent updates regarding the plans for the reopening of schools in September will be included on this site, as well.

Our district administrators and local association leadership have been hard at work developing frameworks for instructional models and health/safety protocols to ensure the well-being of students, staff, and families as we transition to an adaptive model of in-person learning in September. We have also been collaborating with districts throughout Bergen County and the State of New Jersey, in addition to working with schools nationally and internationally, on sharing best practices and ideas for a return to in-person learning.

As discussed in previous communications, the next step in developing our reopening plans is to incorporate the critical input of multiple stakeholder groups within the community: faculty/staff, administrators, parents/guardians, students, and board of education members. We received an overwhelming response to the invitation extended to these groups in our prior district communication; in fact, well over 400 members of our community responded to the survey with a desire to be included in this important initiative. Even though not all those who volunteered will be able to participate in the initial planning committees due to the constraints of effective committee structures, there will be numerous opportunities throughout this process for all interested community members to offer their insights, perspectives, and experiences to help inform the process. Further communication will be sent to final committee members in the coming days regarding the schedule and structure of the committees.

Again, you may gain additional insight into the reopening process by visiting the Paramus Community Connections site. Specific details regarding the structure of the reopening process, including specific items relating to a variety of core components, are included on this site.

Thank you for helping us to provide the best possible scenario for the start of school in September for our students, families, and staff. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback by email
